The exhibition examines the collective violence of groups against individuals, from antiquity to the present day. It explores prehistoric human sacrifices, lynching (including burning at the stake) and violence in our times.

At the same time, the exhibition looks at the forces that have attempted to oppose violence, such as Religion and Enlightenment.

The event is based on an exhibition of the Swiss National Museum, Landesmuseum Zürich.

An audio guide will accompany you through the exhibition at the CAGI in Geneva
